Oliphant, Margaret: The Seen and the Unseen (collected ghosts). v1. 25 Sep 2018

In these collected tales, the writer takes us on chilling excursions to the borderland between the natural and the supernatural; with stories of the attempts of the dead to contact the living, and moving accounts of what might lie ahead in the afterlife.

The “grand master” M. R. James admired Oliphant's supernatural fiction, concluding that “the religious ghost story, as it may be called, was never done better than by Mrs. Oliphant in ‘The Open Door’ and ‘A Beleaguered City’”.

The short story “The Library Window” is, quite simply, a little masterpiece.

(This collection presents all of Oliphant’s “Stories of the Seen and Unseen”.)

Margaret Oliphant Wilson Oliphant (born Margaret Oliphant Wilson) (4 April 1828 – 20 June 1897), was a Scottish novelist and historical writer. Her fictional works encompass “domestic realism, the historical novel and tales of the supernatural”. Highly prolific, she wrote more than 120 works, including novels, books of travel and description, histories, biographies, and volumes of literary criticism. Although interest in Oliphant’s work declined after her death, a revival has been apparent since the 1980’s. Her best novels, in particular the Carlingford series, have been compared to the work of Jane Austen and Anthony Trollope.

--------------------
The contents of this book were first published 1857 ~ 1897. Text is in the public domain worldwide, because the author died more than 100 years ago, and the works were published prior to 1923.

This is my own compilation. Transcripts were obtained from gutenberg.org, gutenberg.net.au, fadedpage.com, and archive.org. PDF scans of early editions were obtained from archive.org.
Story titles are cross-linked to table of contents.
Embedded font used for titling. Editing notes are available at end of the book.

============
I classified this book as "Fantasy" rather than "Horror" because the stories are eerie and unsettling, but not horrifying.
I hope you enjoy it.
